There are a little over thirty jazz piano trio nominations, listed in alphabetical order by leader, and I’m giving you ten votes to award.
Your vote is really as much for the trio leader, as some trio memberships had variations and different permutations over time, for example the replacement of Scott La Faro by Eddie Gomez would still be considered Bill Evans Trio. I’ve listed the “main” historical membership, not every permutation, so lets not quibble over exact musicians listed. No doubt some one will, it’s the internet (rolls eyes)
I have not included Monk, because I think he is a special case and not a piano trio as such, though he recorded in trio format on occasions. You may disagree, but its my party. As usual, there will be some trios dear to someone’s heart that have been overlooked. You can’t please everyone, I’ve listed all those people have nominated. You can include another artist under the “Other” entry. As usual, you are welcome to make comments.
All ten votes have to be cast in one voting session before pushing the vote button, as Poll Daddy, the WordPress voting platform, allows only one session per voter. Opportunity to vote expires in one week.
Go for it.

Tommy Flanagan, Wilbur Little, Elvin Jones, I knew that. You don’t understand the pressure of blogging leads to shortcuts to manage impossible workloads.
Anyway. Overseas (Over C’s) is a very fine album which I don’t have on account of its pricetag
and the relative scarcity of its Prestige come-back reissue on blue/trident label. However there are Japanese Metronome/ Teichiku pressings (later ’70s) fairly in abundance.
If my memory serves me right, Japan is overseas, isn’t it? More to the point, any one with any experience of either of these editions? They seem to have different catalogue numbers, and no one owns up to an opinion. Anyone?
